THE NATIONAL LOTTERY jackpot has been rolling over since 4 April with no winner of the main prize.

That changed yesterday with a single ticket scooping the main prize of a tasty €5,900,958.

The National Lottery say the winning ticket was sold in the midlands but there are no details yet whether or not the ticket was a quick pick.

The winning numbers were 2, 5, 13, 17, 32, 34 with a bonus number of 45. 

The lucky winner seemed to have taken all the luck last night with no winners of either the Lotto Plus 1 or Lotto Plus 2 draws.
